Small Bowel & Colonic Disease



What is small bowel & colonic disease?

Small bowel disease:

The small bowel, also known as the small intestine, is a crucial part of the digestive system. It is a long, coiled tube that connects the stomach to the large intestine (colon). Despite its name, the small intestine is actually longer than the large intestine. It plays a central role in the digestion and absorption of nutrients from the food we eat.

What is Colonic Disease?

Colonic disease refers to any disorder or condition that affects the colon, also known as the large intestine. The colon is the final portion of the digestive system, responsible for absorbing water and electrolytes from undigested food matter, forming stool, and facilitating its elimination from the body.

There are numerous colonic diseases, each with its own causes, symptoms, and treatments.

What signs indicate minor bowel obstruction? 

Minor bowel obstruction, also known as partial bowel obstruction, occurs when there is a partial blockage in the small or large intestine that impedes the normal flow of intestinal contents. While a minor obstruction may not completely block the intestine, it can still cause uncomfortable symptoms. Signs indicating a minor bowel obstruction may include:

The following are examples of small bowel blockage symptoms:

  • Stomach discomfort and cramps in the abdomen
  • Bloating
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Dehydration
  • Malaise (an overall feeling of illness)
  • Having no appetite

A lot of constipation. A person won’t be able to pass gas or stool in cases of total occlusion.

What is the remedy for minor bowel obstruction?

  • Patients who have intestinal obstructions are admitted to hospitals. Treatment options include bowel rest with nothing to eat (NPO), intravenous (in the vein) fluids, and, occasionally, bowel decompression using a nasogastric tube (a tube that is inserted into the nose and goes directly to the stomach).
  • Anti-emetics: To treat nausea and vomiting, medication may be necessary.
  • Surgery may be required if the small intestine is entirely strangulated or obstructed. Surgery aims to locate and address the intestinal obstruction’s root causes. Sometimes, intestinal portions may require surgery. It could be necessary to resection and remove the diseased portion.

Symptoms of Colonic cancer

Colon cancer symptoms and signs include:

  • Constipation, diarrhoea, or a change in the stool’s consistency that lasts for a long time are examples of persistent changes in bowel habits.
  • bleeding from the rectum or blood in the stools
  • ongoing abdominal discomfort that includes cramps, gas, or pain
  • a sensation that your bowels aren’t totally empty
  • weakness or exhaustion
  • Unaccounted-for weight loss

Early on in the disease, colon cancer is often symptomless in many patients. Depending on the size and location of the cancer in your large intestine, symptoms may differ when they do.

Causes of colon cancer

Most colon cancers are unknown causes, according to doctors.

Colon cancer typically starts when normal colonic cells experience DNA abnormalities (mutations). A set of instructions that inform a cell what to do can be found in its DNA.

Your body’s healthy cells divide and grow in an organised fashion to maintain regular physiological function. However, when a cell’s DNA is harmed and it becomes cancer, it continues to divide even though new cells are not required. A tumor is created as the cells assemble.
